  • Evaluating a team, tech, and market to determine expected business performance
  • How hiring mistakes early in entrepreneurship shaped how he evaluates team members. Seeks to uncover two pieces of a candidate’s professionalism:
    – Soft skill traits – ideally resilience and creativity
    – The cognitive biases that drive them
  • Preparing for Cylance’s IPO roadshow which led to a conversation with BlackBerry and ultimately a $1.4b acquistion
